The paranoia between the two empires could have easily been erased had friendly relations been established. I quite sure Yazdegerd and Heraclius were kicking themselves for not thinking about this when the Arabs opening large cans of "whup-ass" on them.

I wonder how the history of the Papacy would have been different (and by extention, the religious history of Catholic Europe) had Italy remained unfragmented (ie, no Lombard invasion, or beating off the Lombards afterwards) and the Pope didn't have to assume all the secular power he did around Rome.
